A New Pup!

I arrived home one day last week after work. The sun had almost completely disappeared from the sky. I hurried into the house because it was cold and dark, but only to find my depressed husband laying on the couch in the dark! It was the saddest thing I've ever seen! Seriously. Brandon is always upbeat and positive, but the recent loss of his 2 labs really had him down.

I just couldn't see him upset like that anymore, so I told him that maybe we could get another pup to help the hurt go away. He wasn't too thrilled about it at first, but soon was excited to go look at a 6 week old German Shepard. (He had them when he was growing up) Anyway, needless to say, we bought him! His name is Max.

Stupid Chicken Hawk!

Reader's Discretion is Advised!

So this past Saturday, I went to Helen's bridal shower, which was lots of fun and Brandon went and worked with his Paw Paw. He and his Paw Paw still weren't back by the time I got done with the shower so I decided to take a nap. :) Yay!

All of a sudden, I here the front door swing open and Brandon comes flying into the house. He runs into the bedroom (scaring me half to death) and grabs his 22 rifle. He doesn't say a word to me and just runs back outside... Well, of course I was very curious as to what he was doing so I jumped out of bed and ran to the front door. When I got outside, I saw him walking out of the chicken pen with a dead red-tail hawk...

Come to find out, Brandon got home from working with his Paw Paw and decided to go check on our chickens. He heard them squawking a bit. Nothing more than usual though. However, when he got around the fence, he saw a huge hawk jumping up and down on one of our chickens, trying to kill it with it's talons. Brandon went into "protection mode" and ran into the pen with nothing other than his fists! Luckily as he went in, he saw a 2 x 4 and grabbed it. He went into the chicken coop and knocked the hawk out cold... or so he thought! He ran inside, grabbed his gun, and when he got back outside, the stupid hawk was at it again! Brandon couldn't believe it! He went inside the coop again and waited for the hawk to turn around and look him in his eye (he said). The hawk reared back with his talons sticking out toward Brandon and Brandon shot him in the noggin. Like, 7 times. He was furious. Unfortunately, we lost our biggest and best laying chicken before Brandon got home. Some of the other chickens were hurt in the fight, but fortunately they are all doing great.

I feel kinda bad for the chicken hawk. He was a beautiful bird only doing what was natural for him. But we have to protect our little farm animals. Thank heavens for a manly-man like Brandon!


Wednesday, November 19th our two beautiful lab puppies went missing.

Brandon went to Wal-Mart for about 20 minutes and when he got back to the house, they were gone. We have no idea what has happened to them. We miss our Buddy and Molly and hope they find their way home one day!

I love my Hunny!

Today is our 1 year Anniversary!!!

On this day one year ago, I woke up at Ms. Kim's house with my mother, sister Maver, and BFF Angelique. We went and got our hair done and headed to the Baton Rouge LDS temple. It was there that I was sealed for all eternity to my most favorite person in the world!

I just want Brandon to know how much I love him! I'm so glad that I married him exactly one year ago today. He is my best friend and my sweetheart. He is a wonderful husband and will one day be an amazing father! I am very grateful to my Heavenly Father for putting me in his path.

Anyway, to celebrate, we woke up this morning and exchanged gifts! Brandon tried to convince me to give gifts last night, but I compromised and we gave them this morning at 6:30 am! I got him headers for his hemi truck (which he has been wanting for a while now)
and he got me DIAMOND EARRINGS!!! I don't have a picture yet but I'm sure we'll take pictures tonight... They are soooo beautiful and I absolutely love them!

I have the best hubby ever!

Happy Anniversary, Brandon!
